Former CIA official Andrew Bakaj, who once worked at Hillary Clinton’s office while she was a Senator, is representing the whistle-blower who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Bakaj works for the Compass Rose Legal Group, a law firm in Washington D.C. that specializes in national security matters. The anonymous whistle-blower is the latest client for this Democratic Party operative who claims to be an advocate for government transparency.
“Andrew’s dedicated his career to bettering the lives of whistle-blowers. He has a respect for the system he helped create and implement when he was on the inside,” said Irvin McCullough, who works for the Government Accountability Project.
Bakaj was pushed out of the CIA in 2014 after reporting concerns of alleged evidence tampering within the CIA watchdog office to the Intelligence Community Inspector General. The Department of Homeland Security inspector general later cleared Bakaj, claiming that the CIA conducted a “retaliatory investigation” against him for pointing out wrongdoing.
Bakaj was influential in crafting regulations regarding whistle-blowers while serving in the administration of former President Barack Obama. He has written many blogs about the Trump administration, some of which are neutral in tone while others are more critical of their actions.
He started his career working under influential former Democratic lawmakers. Bakaj served as an intern for the late former Sen. Daniel Moynihan (D-NY), then as an intern under Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and then he worked under Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY).
Curiously, Bakaj also interned at the US Embassy in the Ukraine, showing that he has ties to the country that is under the microscope right now for President Trump’s reported communication with their leader about Joe Biden’s dealings.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) officially announced today that she will be conducting an impeachment inquiry over the whistle-blower’s complaint about Trump’s communications with the Ukrainian President.
“Here we are. A moment of truth. Truth is what this has been about all along.” Pelosi said today. “The DNI has chosen to break the law. The law is clear.”
“This is a betrayal of our national security. A betrayal of our election,” she added.
“The President must be held accountable. No one is above the law,” Pelosi said while she announced the impeachment inquiry.
As the Democrats try to stack the deck against Trump and remove him from office non-democratically, more Americans are learning about the corrupt actions that Biden admitted to publicly while he was Vice President:

With President Trump willing to release full transcripts of the now infamous phone call, the Clinton machine is going to have a difficult time booting him from office over this manufactured controversy.
